TRE In Action

 

The focus of TRE-funded programs is centered around academic support, as well as 21st-century classrooms.

The additional operating revenue allows SAISD to approach academic programs with the kind of creativity and innovation needed to ensure all students receive a quality education and are well-prepared for college and careers.

What's happening?

SAISD's master teachers are helping our students meet their full potential. Master teachers provide additional academic support for students during extended-day sessions. The TRE is also providing school renovations for 21st-century classrooms, as pictured here at the Young Women's Leadership Academy (YWLA).

The TRE is giving students a boost in the areas of extracurricular activities! These enrichment opportunities for middle-school students are for fine-arts programs like band, ROTC/LOTC, and athletics. Research shows that students who are involved in extracurricular activities do better academically!

Technology is a big part of the TRE at SAISD. The District is working hard to see that every school has the necessary infrastructure for quality access to the internet. Our goal is that over the next five years, each student will have a device to use, with the equipment not to be over three years old.

 

Technology in Classrooms

Academic support:

  • SAISD's roster of Master Teachers is accelerating student performance. These teachers, who have a track record of achieving high levels of student success, are placed in classrooms across the District for programs that will include extended school days and summer school.
  • To better serve our dyslexic students, we increased our team of dyslexia specialists who will support our elementary, providing services directly to students, as well as coaching and training to teachers.
  • To increase student success with advanced courses, a team of 14 Advanced Placement and 12 International Baccalaureate specialists not only will teach students, but also go out to campuses to provide instructional support for AP and IB teachers.
  • Extracurricular offerings are available in fine arts, ROTC and athletics.

 

Technology is a key component in 21st-Century classrooms.

  • The District is upgrading old technology, starting with schools with the lowest computer to student ratio. Technology purchases include hand-held devices, interactive whiteboards, and other equipment.
  • A five-year technology plan is underway.
  • Over time, SAISD plans to fund classroom renovations for all schools that did not benefit from either SAISD Bond 2016 or 2010.
